EPIC X CHRONO TOURBILLON

I

When launching the new Epic X collection in 2016, Jacob & Co. ventured into a new direction, with new shapes, new material and a new frame of mind. The inspiration of the design came from the letter X which symbolizes something unknown, mysterious and appealing which was the energy of the brand at the time. Epic X Chrono Tourbillon is the high complication evolution of the original concept. It retains the major design features of Epic X : its assertive 47-mm case, its unique lug shape and the way it develops through the dial thanks to a set of X-shaped bridges. The two-counter chronograph is enhanced by a flying tourbillon located at 6 o'clock, turning the sports timepiece into a high watchmaking version of itself.

Epic X Chrono Tourbillon requires a movement that brings all the energy of Epic X Chrono and takes it up one notch. Caliber JCAA09 is a self-winding chronograph with two registers, a configuration called bi-compax. The classic movement architecture, with horizontal clutch, column wheel and two pushers is interpreted in a sporty fashion. It's enhanced by a one-minute flying tourbillon located at 6 o'clock. The openworked carriage retains one of Jacob & Co.'s most distinctive designs. Along with its chronograph function, Epic X Chrono Tourbillon comes with a rare feature. Its inner ring is not fixed. It rotates on demand thanks to a second crown at 10 o'clock. This allows to create time marks, or a countdown process that adds to the piece's natural complexity. The case is engineered to shield every protruding part. The crown, the pushers, the countdown crown are all inserted in pieces that come out of the case's round shape. This ruggedness is further enhanced by the case's water-resistance to 200 meters.

Caliber JCAA09 is all a chronograph can be and everything a tourbillon allows. Functional, finely finished and highly exclusive, it bears the signature design elements of Jacob & Co. and of the Epic X collection.

Epic X Chrono Tourbillon can be either a highly sports-oriented chronograph, a summer-themed one, or purely luxurious. Versatility lies at the core of a great sports chronograph, and Epic X Chrono Tourbillon adds a high complication touch to increase that effect.
